I wrote a book about caring - caring when the going is tough and the rewards seem few. Caring to visit and take time; caring that the person you are caring for is made up of so much more; caring to connect. Carers don't always get to see the blessings their care actions have on the recipient, and it's some of those blessings that I wanted to throw a light on in 'When I See Grandma,' to offer hope and encouragement to those who care both personally and professionally, and especially to children.
So to all the carers out there - and there are many, many of you caring in all sorts of different and difficult situations - and if you are not now, the chances are that you will be a carer in the future - I say THANK YOU. YOUR CARING MAKES A DIFFERENCE. YOUR CARING IS A BLESSING. I made this little animation for you...
